The beginners Guide to the Birthsigns of Tamriel
In Tamriel, a birthsign is the constellation under which a person is born. Each bestows upon those born under it unique magical powers, either passive or active, and may be perceived as either a "blessing" or a "curse". Although mostly a way to deepen the history of your character in the Elder Scrolls: Secret Stories, the birthsigns do have some advantages. This does however not affect your character or the game in any real sense, only in the way you might play.
